Opera offers content development kit for connected TV apps
The floodgates may be opening for app development on the connected TV. After Samsung announced that it was undertaking a more open applications development approach, Opera Software has now announced a content development kit (CDK). A key benefit to the CDK, Opera notes, is that it will allow Web developers create apps without having direct access to the device itself. Web developers will be able to create apps in HTML5 and HbbTV environments on a PC.
